Mac - Error -192 on launch on 680x0 hardware
Build ID: 1999080908 Platform: System 7.5.5, LC 475 (68LC040) hardware To reproduce: - Download and unstuff the latest seamonkey build - Open apprunner Result: A system error message appears (error -192). On Mac OS 8.1, the same system error message is changed to suggest that the application "may not run on [your] hardware". Expected result: apprunner should put up its own error message explaining that it requires a PowerPC-based Mac OS computer.

WE only support Mac OS 8.5 and above. marking this bug Invalid.
Re-opening. This is a perfectly valid bug. We have tens of millions of users over diverse hardware and with diverse technical backgrounds. Unless it is not technically practical to do, it is our responsibility to provide a meaningful error message that the software won't run either at the application level, or at the installer level.
Specifically, I meant to say that if the user attempts to execute the software on a platform/OS that isn't supported, they should receive a meaningful error. (They should also receive a meaningful error if they try to *install* it on an unsupported platform, as well.)
Finally, I'd gladly accept a LATER resolution to 5.1, but not INVALID. ;)
I think the proper fix is to make a fat app and have the 68K version jsut put up a dialog saying PPC is required. That is a bit of work.
